Monthly update Sussex Living November 2016
What with a chill in the air and the clocks now changed, it’s time to start snuggling down for winter.
We have been really taken with the Danish concept of hygge that seems to be taking the world by storm at the moment, and from page 34 Lisa de Silva discovers how to make your home into a hygge haven. It’s such a neat concept, and one we could all easily enjoy this winter; just try taking a few minutes out of your busy day to savour a decadent hot chocolate (with marshmallows and cream of course) for a truly indulgent, hygge moment – yes please!
We are celebrating two anniversaries in our November issue for our local community. Firstly the Market Place Shopping Centre in Burgess Hill is turning 25 this year (full story from page 12) and also the Mid Downs Radio, who keep the patients of the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath entertained is celebrating turning 40 (p. 8). Congratulations to both of you!
The Sussex Living team enjoyed our own night of celebrations recently at the 6th annual Child Of Sussex Awards. We all had a wonderful time on this special night, which champions the outstanding children we have in Sussex with award categories including Best Brother, Sister or Friend Award, Sporting Star and The Gold Award. Huge congratulations to all the winners and nominees, including Isabel Galvao-King for the Community Award, Sebastian Stevens for the Gold Award and Abi Smith for the Best Friend Award. We hope all of you and your families are very proud of what you have achieved (for full details and winners visit www.childofsussex.co.uk).
And finally, look out for your favourite Sussex Living Magazine in Lewes and Worthing as we are now distributing in these places! Have a wonderful month everyone!
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
